VLC for Android
VLC for Android is an impressive media player

VLC is a media player that has been available for Mac and PC for some time, as well as for iOS. While there has been a remote tool available for Android that can be used to control playback of the main application on another computer, but now there is a dedicated Android app that can be used to play local and streaming music and video on your phone or tablet.

Just as with the desktop version of the software, there is support for an impressive range of file formats and you can view videos complete with subtitles or alternative soundtracks. Auto-rotation ensures that the best use is made of available screen space depending on the orientation of your device, and gestures are available for controlling volume. Volume can also be controlled using the bundled widget.

It is important to note that this is beta software and the developers themselves point out that it is not stable and is only really suitable for power users and hackers. In reality, it is unlikely to cause any damage to your Android device, but don’t expect blistering performance or uninterrupted playback at this stage. This are shaping up well, but there is still some way to go before this is an app that is suitable for day to day use.

If you want to take a sneak peak at what to expect from future releases of the apps, the beta is a great way to keep in the loop. You might find that your hardware is not supported, and this is something that may or may not change as development continues. Despite the early stage of development, you should find that if the app is support by your device, it works pretty well, and as things are only going to improve, this bodes very well indeed.

Verdict:

This is obviously a very early demo of what’s to come, but it’s definitely an app to keep an eye on

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
